We know that people want great value combined with an excellent experience from a bank they can trust, so we launched our digital bank, Chase UK, to
revolutionise mobile banking with seamless journeys that our customers love. We're already trusted by millions in the US and we're quickly catching up in
the UK – but how we do things here is a little different. We're building the bank of the future from scratch, channelling our start-up mentality every step of
the way – meaning you'll have the opportunity to make a real impact.

As a platform engineer at JPMorgan Chase within the International Consumer Bank, you will be joining our Cloud Platform Engineering tribe, which is at
the heart of a cutting-edge cloud-native AWS infrastructure that powers the Chase UK bank that is trusted by over 2 million customers. You will be
exposed to a wide spectrum of technologies such as Kubernetes clusters, connectivity, databases, kafka clusters, as well as numerous opportunities to
create automations to eliminate toil and improve developer experience.

We're looking for people who have a curious mindset, thrive in collaborative squads, and are passionate about new technology. By their nature, our people
are also solution-oriented, commercially savvy and have a head for fintech. We work in tribes and squads that focus on specific products and projects –
and depending on your strengths and interests, you'll have the opportunity to move among squads within the tribe.
